apt-get upgrade question
Last week I upgraded a stock woody install to KDE 3.1.1 using Ralf's debs.
Everything went very smoothly and I am very happy with it - only one or two
Tonight I did an "apt-get update", "apt-get upgrade" and it said it would
upgrade 45 packages. I picked "n" and then did "apt-get -s upgrade". As I
KDE relevant packages were targeted.
An excerpt of the print out is:
Inst libc6-dev (2.2.5-11.5 Debian-Security:3.0/stable) [ ]
Inst libc6 (2.2.5-11.5 Debian-Security:3.0/stable)
Conf libc6 (2.2.5-11.5 Debian-Security:3.0/stable)
Inst kdelibs4 (4:3.1.1-0woody3 Official build of KDE for Debian stable:stable)
Inst kdelibs-bin (4:3.1.1-0woody3 Official build of KDE for Debian
stable:stable) [ ]
Inst kdelibs-data (4:3.1.1-0woody3 Official build of KDE for Debian
Using kdelibs as an example, the version to be installed is stated as
4:3.1.1-0woody3. (what does the "4" mean?)
From this I assume that the update will come from Ralf's site and that doing
an upgrade should be ok.
Is this a safe assumption?
